Police dog helps nab Alberta Jaguar driver following high speed chase
WHITECOURT — A suspected drug dealer is parked in an Alberta jail after leading police on a chase that involved a speedy Jaguar and a slower but determined police dog.
RCMP and Alberta Sheriff traffic units tried to stop the luxury car on Monday night near Whitecourt, but the driver drove off at speeds exceeding 230 km/h.
Police say the Jaguar ended up going off the road, and a suspect fled on foot into a forest.
Officers tracked him down with the help of the police dog, which helped police make the arrest.
Police say they seized a loaded handgun and quantities of meth, cocaine, heroin and oxycodone pills.
Brian Buxton of Sylvan Lake faces dangerous driving, drug trafficking and weapons charges.
